Batman star Christian Bale turned into a real life super hero over the Christmas holidays, when he stepped in to break up a fight between two homeless men.
The Batman: The Dark Knight Rises actor was shopping in California near his home in Brentwood, Los Angeles when he noticed two homeless men exchanging words, then attacking each other! The star reportedly swept into action and split up the two men. A source says,
"I could not believe what I was seeing. It wasn't clear what the people were arguing about - but it soon became apparent that their conversation was heading toward a violent incident."
We imagine with all of the training Bale has endured for his Batman role, he's more than qualified to mediate a fight. It also makes us fancy him a little bit more. The star even lectured the men on how their behaviour might effect onlooking holidaymakers and their families. The source went on to say,
"One of the homeless guys cocked back his fist and was just about to strike the other man - but out of nowhere Christian Bale appeared and got in the middle of them! Christian acted like a referee and told the homeless men to take it elsewhere - and away from all the families that were enjoying the peaceful surroundings."
At least California can stay safe in the knowledge that Batman is watching over their streets. We don't know about you, but that just isn't enough hot-guy-breaking-up-fight news for us. So, why not check out this video of Ryan Gosling intervening a fight between two gentlemen in New York. You even get to see the actor hug one of the men, just imagine it's you.
